Added DiffLines:

* As Doctor Legg, Leonard Fenton was an important member of the original cast of ''Series/EastEnders'', with some major storylines centred on him. Fenton later half-left the series, and Doctor Legg became an occasional character who appeared only when someone needed medical help. Eventually, the character retired and moved away but he was seen again even after that.

* In the seventh season of ''Series/RedDwarf'', Arnold Rimmer only appeared in person in two episodes, then was relegated to flashbacks, dream sequences and - in one memorable case - a theme park ride based on his own diaries. The actor playing him, Chris Barrie, had decided to leave the show and had a very limited schedule, so he agreed to appear in a handful of episodes (and sequences that could be filmed out of order, such as ADR or flashbacks).

* Jimmy [=McNulty=] from ''Series/TheWire'' in season four, going from being the defacto star in the first three seasons. The actor playing [=McNulty=] wanted some time off to do film and theater and spend time with his family, this was explained in series by him deciding to leave the Major Crimes Unit after his adversary was killed before he could take him down, becoming a patrolman and mending his ways while he was at it. He got off the bus in season five, though.

* The ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' series has had three main protagonists so far -- Arle Nadja, Amitie, and Ringo Andou. Each time a new protagonist was introduced, the previous one engaged in this trope, losing prominence but still appearing in every game. Sega's reluctance to ''remove'' characters from the "core cast" has been a major factor in this -- Witch and Draco Centauros appear and are playable in ''Puyo Puyo {{VideoGame/Tetris}}'' entirely because they're still part of this group, but have zero actual plot relevance.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Since being freed from the mutineers, Ghost has been seldom seen. This is explained at first by him being penned up at Thorne's order, but once Jon becomes Lord Commander, he remains suspiciously absent aside from a single appearance in "The Gift".

* In the Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote series, Sunahara is closest to being Aya's official boyfriend, having mutually confessed [[spoiler:to the point that he made a serious marriage proposal in the 20th novel]]. But he only appears once a few novels (stably once every 3-4 novels since the 12th novel), and leaves at the end of it. This is probably to {{enforce|dtrope}} their LongDistanceRelationship so as to perpetuate what can be seen by older readers as a ReverseHaram.

** After K-9 was written out of ''Series/DoctorWho'' in "Warriors' Gate", various models of K-9 (although this is played down to the point that non-fans probably don't realise that in-canon there is more than one version of the character) have intermittently appeared in different parts of the franchise, including a period as a regular character in ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' and ''Series/{{K9}}'', a short-lived Australian series with little connection to the rest of the franchise due to rights issues.

* Pike on ''WebVideo/CriticalRole''. Her player, Creator/AshleyJohnson, is more of a mainstream celebrity than the other gamers and is often in New York filming ''Series/{{Blindspot}}'', so the character is often separate from the group, staying behind at local temples while the rest of the team goes off on their quests. When Ashley has time to make an appearance, either via Skype or in person, the crew either go to Pike's location to pick her up or she comes in via AstralProjection.
